When Venus moves into Cancer on June 2, 2021 until June 26, 2021, we lose the happy-go-lucky spirit of Venus in Gemini and love becomes a rather more intense and serious affair. Venus in Cancer is loving, sensitive energy, which cares deeply and feels enormous compassion and sympathy for others. However, this is also energy which is heavily focused on emotional security.
When Venus is in Cancer, we want to feel safe and nurtured, so that we can in turn protect and nurture others. We generally don’t feel safe in wild relationships, so this energy is more faithful and more cautious than some other expressions of Venus.
It can be too cautious, in fact, as there is a tendency when Venus is in Cancer to play it too safe. We may be over-protective of ourselves or our loved ones – or indeed, overly touchy or overly suspicious about the behavior of others. Ruled by the Moon, in astrology Cancer as a zodiac sign is famously moody, and when Venus is in Cancer, the moods of love can change very swiftly indeed.
Materially, Venus in Cancer is shrewd. Financial stability matters here, just as emotional stability matters in love, but Venus in Cancer is not afraid to take calculated risks, and this is generally thought to be a good transit for business matters.
